The Nakatani RIES: Research & International Experiences for Students Fellowship connects undergraduates with the best of science & engineering research in the U.S. or Japan.  The program serves as a catalyst for U.S. & Japanese students interested in future graduate study and research and contributes to the development of a generation of globally-engaged scientists & engineers who have the technical and culture skills to contribute to vibrant international research collaborations in the future.

The Nakatani RIES Fellowship for U.S. Students is a 13-week, summer research internship in science & engineering that is open to freshman and sophomore engineering students from universities nationwide. This summer program seeks to cultivate interest in science & engineering research among young U.S. undergraduate students, especially those from underrepresented groups, and encourages such students to pursue future graduate study. To be eligible students must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Up to 12 students will be selected to participate annually.
